We made these adorable toilet paper tube bird feeders and they were SUPER easy! Here's what you need:
- Toilet paper tubes (1 per feeder you'd like to make)
- Bird seed
- Peanut butter (or sunflower butter if you're worried about allergies)
- String or ribbon
- Shallow plate
- Knife or spoon for spreading
First, dump the bird seed into a shallow plate. Then have your child spread peanut butter (or sun butter) all over the toilet paper tube. Roll it in the bird seed. I found it was easiest when I had G do one half of the tube and then the other while I held it for her.
Warning: There will be lots of peanut tasting happening during this project! Haha! I think about half the peanut butter went on the tube and the other half G totally ate.
Once the tube is covered in birdseed, thread some string or ribbon through the middle and hang it on your tree! The birds will thank you and your child will have fun connecting with nature. Enjoy!
